There is a slight learning curve to the grinder, but all in all I am very pleased with it. no worse than grinding beef for hamburger, and I think once I get used to it, churning out 6-8 cups for a batch of bread will be easy.

Onions Part 2

Hydroponic Green onions.

                                                                                  Note the plants still in the glass.

Spread the cut greens on the dehydrator tray.
The plants keep growing and can be harvested several times!

Dehydrating Onions

Sure cure for sinus issues.
Step 1: Buy 50 pounds of onions.
10 pounds diced filled this 32 cup Thatsa Bowl
Drag into house and perhaps question your plans.

Step 2: Peel and dice said onions.
Yes all of them.
Ok, actually spread the joy over 5 days because of drying time.

Step 3: Spread out the diced onions over dehydrator trays.
Place rolled up kitchen towel under front edge of dehydrator.  Trust me on this, you'll thank me later.

Step 4: Determine how many windows you can open. Make a shopping list that perhaps includes a trip to another state.

Repeat steps until all onions are dried.
Same 10 pounds after 26 hours in the dehydrator.
